Any Indians with ADHD?



I’m an engineering student from Mumbai. I’m pretty sure I have ADHD (I haven’t been diagnosed, my family won’t /doesn’t take me seriously) and it has… it’s pretty bad. I’ve disappointed every single person who saw potential in me.

I want to get a diagnosis from a real doctor. Any information regarding where to go, how much it costs, etc. would be appreciated.


There’s a couple of threads where fellow Indians discuss it:


Yeah same problem here my family is not taking it seriously because they think that I’m just lazy and I am trying to find an excuse for my poor performance.
And I talked to psychology counselor in my college she said ADHD goes away when you become an adult and that is so not true
I’m going to a physiatrist tomorrow I hope he knows a thing or two


Hi. I’m from Kolkata and have got diagnosed last august. I know a psychiatrist in Mumbai, from a friend that sees her. You may go and consult with her. Her name is Dr. Nahid Dave. I’m sure she can help you. You should go see a doctor soon. ADHD is a major issue, but some symptoms it causes can be found in some other neurodevelopmental disorders. So, make sure you get a diagnosis before making your mind about having ADHD.
